    I'm unable to actually purchase anything:
    "The seller's store is closed for vacation. Check back later."

    Checked the seller feedback.
    Past sold price of 6TB disks is between $116 to $150.
    Question is : Why would the seller woke one day, decided to sell 6TB disk between $40 to $50.

    Would I be correct to assume these are much louder when operating than a non-Pro versions like Easystore drives?

    Of course there is the possibility that the account is hacked.

    @Psycho_Robotico, could this be why there is no check out??

    Seems like seller wanted to do a fake Black Fri 50% off sale but forgot to double the original price

    Or they were trying to generate traffic. I bet a lot of people have these in their watch list now.

    I've noticed several online retailers lately (EVGA and Amazon Marketplace sellers come to mind) who post great prices on "temporarily out of stock" items, leading me to do a "notify when back in stock" request. But, when they're back in stock, the item is back to more normal pricing. Maybe the vendors hope people will say, well that's an OK price and I'm already here, I guess I'll go ahead and get it. This looks to me like it may be something like that.

    This seller engages in triangulation fraud, unfortunately quite successfully. Please don't give them your money.

    you missed the 50% off from this seller who was "away" and the HDD could not be bought at all. This is definitely a scam from this seller that item cannot be bought during his away time. It should be delay on shipment only, so this seller is scam for watch list/email contacts as mentioned above.
